Vibrations of machine tools limit quality and productivity and therefore need to be analyzed. Video based vibration analysis using spatial phase information could in principle reduce measuring effort significantly. However, feasibility of these approaches for moving machine tool axes and relative movement between camera and object is yet to be shown. This paper investigates an approach for stabilizing linear axis movement to analyze vibration. It is shown that shaker induced vibration on a linearly moving clamping tower can be derived for low frequencies. However, influences of actual cutting processes as well as compensation of unwanted camera vibration needs further investigation.
